Catherine Lee

Ph.D. candidate, English

Catherine Lee is a sixth-year Ph.D. candidate in the English department. Her dissertation, Romantic Humility: Literature, Ethico-Politics, and Emotion, 1780–1820, examines a form of secular humility that does not focus on self-abasement but on selflessness, that arises as a “mood” (Stimmung) in literary writings from the Romantic period.
